At long last somebody has produced a CD of this special album. I'm at a loss as to why Capitol never issued this as a CD. Anyway, here it is and about time too. Only thing is, the sound has been compressed and flatened in the conversion process so it doesn't sound anywhere near as good as the original vinyl. It really could do with some re-mastering.
Lets hope Capitol get off their bums and give it the makeover it deserves.

Let me jump forward to track 7, "Love's Riddle". It is the prettiest song that I have ever heard by anyone, period! Stunning vocals, with real passion, great orchestration and understated rhythm section (bass and drums). Just put on some headphones and listen to Steve' intricate vocal arrangements and how he sings throughout, but especially on the word "sorrow" at the 2:52 mark, That gives me chills and rivals John Lennon's singing in "God", "Jealous Guy" or some of his Beatle high points. Ok, I feel better now, "Love's Riddle" is what you want to make love to and it's timeless. Buy this cd for this song alone!!!!!!!
Now moving along, can you have more fun in a song than "Enter Maurice", Steve JOKING around before the midnight toker lit up.....His doo wop skills compare to Dion and the Belmonts best lines. The playful lyrics, the orgasmic babes doing their thing long before Robert Palmer's girls showed up. Perfect song. When 'High On You Mama" starts up you wonder if JJ Cale was diggin' it and Steve's falsetto fits like a glove. "Heal Your Heart" is fun but not earthshattering, but once again Steve sings it so well. By the way, Steve does not harmonize with the other guys, he sings all the vocal parts himself, doing octaves like they are suppose to be done. "The Sun is Going Down" is a precursor to "Dance, Dance, Dance" and the rough mix sounds really earthy and I like it better that way. "Somebody, Somewhere Help Me" reminds me of a Springsteen song somehow and it moves like crazy...great bass (Gerald Johnson is hot) and drumming. After "Love's Riddle" comes "Fandango" and it starts with dualing acoustic guitars, gorgeous vocals and then Steve Miller reminds everyone why he stuck "Guitar" between "Stevie and Miller".

Given that this seems to be about the only source of this album on CD (though supplied from Germany, the country of manufacture is Argentina, of all places), one of the most important things prospective buyers need to know is whether or not it's produced from the original master tapes. Having recently bought another long awaited album on CD, only to find it was just a poor transcription of an old and very evidently worn vinyl, I'm happy to report that this, the fifth or sixth Steve Miller Band album, is indeed from the original master tapes, so you can buy with confidence. I never heard the original vinyl so I can't comment on how this compares, but it certainly sounds okay to me, hearing it for the first time some 37 years after its original release.

That aside, it's also jolly good musically as well, featuring, in addition to the redoubtable Mr Miller, Jesse Davis (guitar), Gerald Johnson (bass), Jim Keltner, Gary Mallaber and a couple of others on drums, with producer Ben Sidran doing keyboard duties along with Dick Thompson. Recorded in LA and San Francisco and completed "on the full eclipse of the moon, Jan 29th 1972".
